   Donkey—Hulloa, Porker.  Why stay in that pen and be fed on wheat?  Wouldn't you like to get out here in the pasture?

   Wheat-Fed Porker—Go 'long,  you ignorant donkey: you don't know that "the pen is mightier than the sward."  I belong to the famous Shield Brand Ham, Bacon and Lard family.. Through this Shield Brand connection, I have access to all the best families in Oregon.  The ladies ask their grocers for Shield Brand every time.

["Pen mightier than the sward" is amazing.]

Oregonian.  November 22, 1896,
